How weak your position must be to want so badly to shut down dissenting speech.
    "Shut down dissenting speech"? Go ahead and find the post of mine where I advocate Fox News being shut down.

    Telling them they're full of **** is not "shutting them down." You lose, again.

    Why must you lie so much to defend your precious Fox News? Because you can't admit that their news programming, as well as their commentary (which are often mixed), is fully in the bag for the GOP? And you must lie about the other networks, painting them as in the bag for the Dems, when outside of MSNBC they're clearly not?

    MSNBC and their repeated over the line rhetoric is what the thread is about. Surely you know that?

    Weak attempt at deflection. Another failure for you.

    The attempt at deflection is yours.

    No they don't. But it does make for a handy meme for some on the left to repeat incessantly.....
